Ray's Brainy Quote

I like reading quotes and I find it quite neat to have one written on my desktop. A nice feature would be if it updated automatically once a day and if you could choose the topic of it.

So there I was looking for something which would be at least close to what I wanted and found many things I didn't like at all. There was no other way than to create my own little application.

I chose the website Brainy Quote as a source of quotes and wrote a simple but sufficient widget for the windows sidebar which display a nice quote every day. You can choose from four topics (love / nature / art / fun) or simply go for one without a specified topic. It wouldn't be me If I didn't draw the icons and created at least two styles you could choose from.

So here it is, version 0.1, if you'd like to try it, I'd be more than happy. All you have to do is download it, unzip it and double click it. Done. Here are some screenshots and links for download:
